Appearance
Vibrant purple hue.

Bouquet
Earth and Forest floor notes, briar, fennel and red/blue berries on the bouquet.

Palate
The palate in driven by savoury line, with cherry pip tannins and oak in the background. Cool climate in character, with a taut tannin/acid drive that offers freshness and balance.

Shiraz was destemmed, and then fermented in small open vats. Pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation and matured in French oak barriques (10% new) for 11 months, then bottled in February 2020.

Conclusion
Drink now or over the next 2 to 8 years.

REVIEWS & RATINGS

90 points, Jeni Port - Halliday Wine Companion 2023 - 'Destemmed fruit, fermented in small open vats. Matured 11 months in French barriques (10% new). Raises the ripeness and generosity levels from the 2019 release with an ample, full-blooded Geelong shiraz. Nutmeg, cassia bark, blackberry, dark cherry, coffee grounds and dusty cacao aromas. Works a lively herbal savoury line through the palate with cherry pip tannins and oak all subtly brought together to close. A supple, pleasurable wine to enjoy now or a few years down the track.'
